Particular allergic reactivity that the person can manifest whenever he comes into contact with the feline allergen. Typical clinical manifestations of cat allergy are:
- bronchial asthma
- allergic rhinitis
- allergic irritation of the eyes and larynx
- annoying skin itching that occurs after contact with saliva or as a result of scratching.
There are no cats completely devoid of allergenic capacity, but there are cats with a lower production of allergens such as the Siberian cat. However, even if a smaller amount of allergen is produced, it is not possible to avoid asthma allergic problems with certainty.
Is it true that cats protect children from asthma and allergies?
Researcher at the Swedish University of Goeteborg, Bill Hesselmar, has proven, thanks to two studies, that cats and dogs protect children from allergies, asthma and eczema.
In the first, he examined a sample of children aged 8-9 and saw that 49% of children, who have never had contact with animals, developed allergies, while two children who have lived with five children since birth. animals, they had no allergies whatsoever.
In the second, he examined children aged 0 to 9 and saw that 48% of them who did not live with animals found themselves allergic; then it drops to 35% with the presence of an animal, and even 21% when there are 2 or more animals in the house.
Specifically, he saw that if there is a cat in the house where a child lives from birth and for a period of at least 2-3 years, it will less likely have allergy or asthma related to the animal.
This is because the baby develops antibodies early. This factor can vary if there are smokers in the home, which can complicate your child's respiratory situation.
